LEDE Packages in Wireless-Network category
Would it be possible to install Kali tools and have the Omega run certain Kali applications? I want to create a WiFi sniffer application for a security conference. This repository seems to have everything I need: http://www.tecmint.com/install-kali-linux-tools-using-katoolin-on-ubuntu-debian/
Would this work?
After doing some more research, I can now make a more specific question: Which of the
wireless---networkcategory packages: https://lede-project.org/packages/index/network---wireless are available as an
opkgpackage on the Omega2?
@Luciano-S. thanks, I have bookmarked that post. I haven't received the Omega2 and I wanted to make sure it was possible to install packages from source even if they are not in
opkglist. After reviewing http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/ I realized not all packages on
wireless---networkcategory are on
opkg. I think it should work based on the Octoprint 3D Printer Server Post
The really key question is if the binary only wifi driver will have the interfaces you need, or if the tentative open source one is yet to a point of being sufficiently functional.
Building userspace packages is probably not the main issue.
As a guess, you'd likely be better off with a more normal embedded device that can host a variety of USB wifi dongles using normal Linux drivers (and then choose whatever wifi dongle is considered best for your purposes); in theory an MT7688 system can host a USB wifi dongle in preference to the build in wifi, but it may be an unusual amount of headache to get it all working.
Puts down the popcorn
...Ok, ok.... after finishing a couple Pi 0 W projects, I was sitting here looking at my unused Omega2+ and thinking to myself... I wonder if anyone has shoehorned Kali into one of these, or maybe got Wifite and supporting tools to work. A couple seconds with my friend Google, and here we are. I have now seen the purpose of owning this thing. Lets do this.
I am a padowan in the linuxverse, but this is a project I'm very interested in trying out. I have the Onion Arduino adapter and a Ralink 3070 wifi adapter sitting here.
Give me some commands to try.
BTW, I already went down the road with katoolin on a previous project. Kali is now rolling and, as time goes on, there will be more and more of a compatibility divergence that scripts like katoolin will have to bridge. I finally gave up on that and just found a Kali fork that worked on my hardware.
